What Is It? #5

Yesterday was mucho funo cruising around the blogsphere taking in all the Dona Nobis Pacem posts. It was started humbly by Mimi Lenox a couple of years ago and has since grown into quite an outpouring of support. If you've yet to check out what it's all about I encourage you to go by here and take a look.

Well, I have an idea for a story brewing and I'll probably get it put to words and typed in by the first part of next week. Until then, I though I'd bring back the "What is it?" picture guessing game. These are close up (macro) shots of everyday items. Your object is to figure out what they are.

All three of these items can be found in the same general area. They are used together, but not all three at the same time. I'm sure that nearly everyone reading this has at least two of these items in his/her house and/or has at least had cause to use them.

Know what they are?

I'll post an expanded picture of all three tomorrow to reveal what they are.

Stapler and staples??? Not sure on the middle thingy.

katherine. said...

staple remover

I dunno

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I had a great time yesterday too.

Crystalchick already said the two I was thinking. the stapler is the first shot and the third is a row of staples. The middle one is a staple remover. Did I win a prize? Okay, am I right?

Have a great day. :)

Dana said...

Crystalchick- Two out-a-three ain't bad!

Katherine- Smarty pants!

Sandee- Alright that does it, next time these are going to have to be harder.

Dana- Yep, she got 'em all.

Akelamalu- Bwahahahaha, great answers

Leighann said...

I see they've already been guessed so I'll just say....


Desert Songbird said...

Oh man, I'm late. I was gonna say what Katherine said. And NO, I'm not a copycat!

Sandi McBride said...

I agree, stapler staple remover and staples...can't wait to read the working on it?

Jay said...

Staple remover

Did I win anything???

Jay said...

Oh .. I just went back and read the other comments. I guess I wasn't the first huh? Damn.

Must be faster, grasshopper.

leelee said...

I swear I didn't read anyones comment...I swear!

leelee said...

the teach said...

OKay I got it Jeff, stapler and staples...and of course everybody else got it too! Boy do you owe us prizes!! :D

~Deb said...

My mind must be getting sharper... I guessed it like Katherine! (Thought I'd be the first today.) :(

Just wanted to say hi! I'm back blogging again, which means I'll be pestering you more often, Jeff! :)

Hope you're doing well!

Jeff B said...

Leighann- Hi right back at ya.

Songbird- "Hey teacher, Donna's cheating again!"

Sandi- It's still all in my head (scary I know), but I'll be wprking on it over the next few days.

Jay- When you can take the fry flom my hand...then glasshopper, you will be leady.

Leelee- "Hey teacher, Leelee was looking over Songbird's shoulder at the answers!"

Teach- Finally the teacher is in the room. It was those two over there who were copying.

Your right, I do need to come up with some kind of banner-prize thingy for the winners. I'll work on that for next time.

Deb- Thanks for checking in and welcome back. Great to see you again.

For what it's worth, I would have gotten 3 out of three...

Talisman said...

See, this is why I do the images under a scanning electron microscope. It's fun to watch ppl guess! ;)

Jo said...

I guessed the first and the last right, but I couldn't figure the middle one out at any angle. Nice little exercise to clean the cob webs out of the grey matter.

Dianne said...

OK I'll be honest!

I thought
hole puncher

I'm so creative ;)

Ron said...

Oh shit...I can't believe I got here late and didn't guess first! guesses are Sandee's.

Good going, Sandee!

However, the first one DID have me stumped for a few minutes. I like how you photographed it, bud...I mean, I REALLY had to LOOK at it!

I LOVE these Jeff...keep them coming!!!

Nicole P said...

Oh dang, I was going to guess a do it yourself body piercing kit. And then I was going to ask where you bought it. I was way off!! Tee-hee!!

Jeff B said...

Buffalo- And you would have been correct on all three.

Talisman- This is the fifth go round with this theme and I love seeing the guesses too. Sorry to have missed puting in my two cents on yours.

Jo- I do these periodically, so keep in touch for the next one.

Dianne- I give bonus points for creativeness and silliness both.

Ron- These got nabbed up right out of the gate this time. Gonna have to make them a bit more difficult next time around.

Nichole- OUCH, That's gonna leave a mark!

Jules~ said...

stapler, staple remover thingie, and a row of stapples.

Mel said...


And I really did know these.

Odat said...

Duh, I don't know....


Jeff B said...

Jules- Is that the technical name for that? teehee

Mel- That's alright, these went on the easypeasy list anyway.

Odat- You still get an "A" for honesty
